You thought the Prairies were flat, plain, and boring.
You were wrong.
“So much fun! I’m loving this book … the stories take place in Manitoba, but they transcend” — Joanne Kelly, CBC Manitoba
“… a kaleidoscope of style and subject matter. Echoes of iconic storylines pulled from the annals of cult sci-fi, fantasy and suspense ring through Manitoba’s landscape.” — The Uniter
“I was born and raised in Thompson — a northern community with mosquitos big as ravens, ravens big as bears, and bears that run for local office — so I know weird when I read it. And this is some choice weird right here. I don’t know what the future holds for Manitoba, but if these stories are any indication, the flatlands are in for a bumpy ride.” — Corey Redekop, author of Husk and Shelf Monkey
“…the province is a harsh, demanding land but not without its beauty and rewards. Amazing what stories the contributors wrested from its soil. I confess this book exceeded my expectations. Well worth reading.” —Amazing Stories
